Partick Thistle boss Ian McCall reckons that promoting two teams from every league would be a good way to solve the current Scottish football predicament.

Scottish football is currently mooting a few different scenarios with how’s best to wrap up the 2019/20 season. It is currently suspended as the world battles a global health pandemic.

It’s unlikely that football will return in May like it is billed to just now. To appease the majority of teams, Thistle man McCall reckons sending two up is the correct way to go in the event of a cancellation, although he knows that isn’t straightforward.

 

“‘We’ve a quarter of the season to play. We’ve got 25 per cent of our games to go,” said McCall. “It’s not as if it’s the last two or three games.

“Outwith maybe one notable exception, if two teams get promoted from each league I don’t think those teams would be that bothered about getting a title in this day and age because of the circumstances.

“That may be different in the Premiership but that’s a whole other kettle of fish. I’ve seen a few things mooted. I think you can put two in the Premiership and then go back to normal after the season if that’s what people want.

“You could have two leagues of 20 or all sorts. I frankly don’t like playing teams so many times a season. I’ve said that for many years and I don’t think the fans like that either. There’s a reason for that, obviously, because we have one game that means a lot in terms of television in the top league.”
